Keithley 3700A Systems Switch/Multimeter Product Description

The 3700A offers scalable, instrument grade switching and multi-channel measurement solutions
that are optimized for automated testing of electronic products and components. The 3700A includes
four versions of the 3706A system switch mainframe along with a growing family of plug-in switch and control cards. When the 3706A mainframe is ordered with the high-performance multimeter, you receive a tightly integrated switch and measurement system that can meet the demanding application requirements in a functional test system or provide the flexibility needed in stand-alone data acquisition and measurement applications.

Features

- Four configuration options available
-
Embedded Test Script Processor (TSP®)
- TSP-Link® master/slave connection
- Optional 7½-digit DMM is connected to the mainframe’s analog backplane
- Built-in Web interface
- Optional DMM capable of >14,000 readings/second to memory at 3½ digits
- Front panel USB 2.0 device port
- Built-in LXI/Ethernet, GPIB, and USB interfaces
- Fourteen programmable digital I/O lines

Benefits

- Allows buying the minimum functionality the application requires: with or without DMM, with or without front panel display and keypad.
- Avoids communication delays between the PC controller and instrument by embedding test scripts in the instrument itself, improving test throughput dramatically.
- Offers easy system expansion between mainframes; also allows connecting to other TSP-Link enabled instruments such as Series 2600B SourceMeter SMU instruments.
- Ensures a high quality signal path from each card channel to the multimeter.
- Offers a quick and easy method to control and analyze measurement results.
- Supports high throughput component testing.
- Simplifies transfer of readings, system configurations, and test scripts by allowing them to be saved to memory sticks.
- Supports easy connectivity with other equipment in the test system.
- Allows easy control of external devices like component handlers or other instruments.
